My friend said I had to try this ice cream when I visited her in Cincinnati - she was right! I had the bourbon pecan chocolate chip - delicious!

Graeter's is a MUST when visiting Cincinnati! Consistent service and tasty options at all locations, though this is one of my favorite locale. If a first visit, try an ice cream with chocolate chips...

Best ice cream in Cincinnati, and this is our favorite location. The staff are always eager to serve and very friendly. This is a favorite spot for our kids and their friends after sporting and school events. Our favorite flavors are chocolate chip, black raspberry chip, chocolate, and sea salt caramel. I also had a piece of Graeter's cake at... More

This by far my favorite ice cream anywhere. I got the low glycemic butter pecan and was amazed how good it was. Very rich and flavorful. My wife got peach and my daughter key lime. Both were great. I highly recommend this place.

We stopped for an ice cream treat, since we had heard so much about the quality of the ice cream. We were not disappointed. We both had waffle cones with peach ice cream. The we're large pieces of peach in the rich cream. Definitely some of the best I cream we have ever had. Don'T miss it. Worth the calories.

I love eating Graeter's Ice Cream and I do consider it the best I've had in the USA. I'm not possessed of an encyclopaedic or global knowledge of various ice creams, but this stuff is excellent and, like I said, the best I've had. It's all good here, follow your bliss in choosing flavors and enjoy. Parking is a little... More

I know, that may seem like an over statement, but to back that up, if you refer to the Food channel's guru who tested many Ice Creams through the State and narrowed it down to just two and Greater's WON! I have to agree!

There is a reason why all of the different locations are in the top places in Cincinnati. It is truly the best ice cream. Everyone has a favorite usually with a chip in it and mine is the chocolate chip. Big chunks of chocolate in smooth creamy delicious ice cream. Large scoops! Great to take home too.

I think some sort of cult/hype has developed around this place, so bravo to their marketers and to Oprah, but I think the ice-cream is over-rated - it's good, but not great - if you want truly good ice-cream in cincy, try Aglamessi's (sp?) Brothers. Their ice-cream is truly spectacular, but for some reason hasn't generated such crazy hype.

This treat is worth the calories!!! Be sure to stop if you are in the area. If you are having dinner anywhere else, skip dessert and go strait to Graeters!
